The new tvN romantic comedy drama Wedding Impossible kicked off to solid ratings in South Korea earlier on tonight.

According to Nielsen Korea, Wedding Impossible, Episode 1 earned 4.00 percent of the nationwide viewership, which is a decent audience share for a first episode.

In Seoul, the new tvN drama performed even better, grabbing 4.44 percent of the viewership.

Both ratings placed the Korean drama in first place in its time slot for the evening.

Meanwhile, Wedding Impossible is also garnering positive comments by viewers on My Drama List so far, especially for the performances of the main leads.

A few people also commented the plot had grabbed their attention so much, even from the first episode, they were extremely interested in where it would eventually end up as it could head in several directions.

What is Wedding Impossible?

Wedding Impossible is based on a hit webtoon of the same name written by Song Jung Won and illustrated by Lee Chung.

The Korean drama stars Jeon Jong Seo, Moon Sang Min, Kim Do Wan, and Bae Yoon Kyung.

It tells the story of heir Lee Do Han (played by Kim Do Wan) who asks his friend and unknown actress Na Ah Jeong (Jeon Jong Seo) to enter into a fake marriage with him.

Ah Jeong jumps at the chance, even though she knows Do Han is gay.

Things become complicated, however, when Do Han’s younger brother Lee Ji Han (Moon Sang Min) decides to intervene, as he has no interest in supporting the marriage when it may end up damaging his own ambitions.

How long will it be before Ji Han discovers the marriage isn’t as real as it may first appear?

The 16-episode Wedding Impossible airs every Monday and Tuesday evening at 20:50 (KST) on tvN, with both Amazon Prime and Viki streaming it for their international subscribers in certain regions.
